Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins

3 ripe medium bananas
1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1 1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 tbsp vital wheat gluten
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 large egg whites
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
10 tbsp peanut butter, plus a bit more for filling

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. 

Mash the bananas.

Combine flour, gluten, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat together the sugar and butter.  Add the remaining ingredients (including the bananas) and mix.  Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients.

Fill each muffin tin about halfway.  Add in a small spoonful of PB (about 1 tsp) into each muffin.  Top with remaining muffin mix.

Bake for 28 minutes.
